What’s in Your Cup?

5 Comments

I promised.  I will deliver to your inbox a Monday Morning Mojo Booster via What’s in Your Cup?  Yikes is this a big committment.  But, a promise is a promise.  Plus I know you all have been glued to your inbox just waiting for this since the clock struck midnight.

I also know that stress is inevitable yet we really all have to be conscious of when it is getting out of control.  For the adult eyes here, or when the $hit is about to hit the fan.  I ventured to the “new” Starbucks near my office.  It was the same Baristas but 500 yards down the road and fully equipped with a drive thru.  So far, I am highly impressed with service and efficiency of the drive thru line.  I mean who isn’t a fan of saving precious minutes. I would have been fired by now if not self-employed.  No corporate CEO is going to excuse your lateness, everyday, because you were waiting in a coffee line.  Good grief.

It is only fitting that I ordered up myself a Venti dose of  TAZO Calm tea.  Huh, What’s in Your Cup?  No coffee you say? Well sometimes a throat signal means it’s time to up the herbs and antioxidants.  I hope you are all keeping your stress levels down, boosting up your immune system and prepping to give thanks.  Most importantly, there is a lot to be heard in the short and sweet.  Shh…can you hear it? 

Now that is the spirit.  You’ve got the idea, right?  No pressure.  This is currently a calm zone.  So share What’s in Your Cup?  The topic for the week is Thankful.  With that in mind, keep calm and carry on and may your cup be overflowing with gratitude!

Keep Calm, Carry On, Drink Some Tea and Give Thanks!

Here are my little musings about life, lessons, laughter and love and how to face adversity in the most light-hearted and sometimes humorous ways possible. When life hands you lemons...do you make lemonade or throw them at people? It is not what is happening but how you respond to it that makes ALL the difference! You can't get anywhere doing the back float, you have to "turn around and swim!" So dive in and come from a swim! Feel free to come up for air and comment here and there! Oh and while you are here floating around, feel free to join the swim team! Hope you can keep up and if not, just "follow".

  1. TEA??? I don’t believe in it- unless my temp is over 101.. I can’t swallow .. and I am bed ridden. Bring on the java– am/pm my friend!! Happy Turkey Day to you adn the “P”s!

  2. Great idea! Here’s what was in my cup yesterday: No time for tea, but I was indeed thankful: thankful that my husband’s escaped python remained under the wardrobe until my visitor had left. Hubby hadn’t closed his snake tank properly, so I spent two hours hunting down Avril the python. Then I dealt with my cat, who had returned home full of fleas. Great day!

    • Oh my your cup certainly was multifarious. The level of creepy, crawlers and things that make you scratch amd itch is enough to have some hot whiskey in your mug. Yet, I am glad you are thankful that the squirmy and small winged guys stayed at bay until the air was clear. I have attached a recipe for you in the event this happens again. Happy Flea ridding and python hunting! Thanks for sharing, What’s in Your Cup?

      Hot Irish Whiskey ( I ain’t Irish and I don’t drink whiskey but I think this might be a good remedy when things start a crawlin and you feel like “fleaing”)
      Original recipe makes 1 drink
      8 whole cloves
      1 (1/4 inch thick) slice of lemon
      1 tablespoon white sugar
      3/4 cup boiling water
      1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger Irish whiskey

      1.Press cloves into the peel of the lemon slice all the way around. Set aside. Measure the sugar into a wine glass. Place a metal spoon into the glass with the curved side facing upwards. Pour the boiling water over the back of the spoon. This will keep your wine glass from shattering. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour in the whiskey and add the lemon slice. Let steep for about 1 minute before drinking
